One Woman's Arctic

(1972)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Sheila Burnford spent many months among the Eskimoes of the Baffin Islands. She found them friendly and resourceful, adapting to and absorbing the twentieth century way of life, without being destroyed by it. While she discovered the joys of hunting seals and whales, birdwatching, and learning to understaned the arctic landscapes. She also learned the endurance of living most of the year in sub-zero temperatures - with frozen drinking water and a diet of whale meat and fish. The journal she has written is fascinating, abounding in detail - about a civilization that is dying, and about a life lived close to nature and its extremities, that is also peaceful. A way of life so many people are forgetting or miss, in our urbanised life of today.
